Re: how to use the choke
The choke is useful starting a cold engine sometimes.
On a stock carb, I have found I never need the choke; set it wide open and they usually start right up. If you're using a performance carb then you may need to use the choke to start the engine. On my bike with the 'Speed NT' carb (red square cover) I often need the choke closed for the first clutch drop, then it can be opened up within 5-20 seconds depending on whether it's cool or warm weather.
Any day that starts with a good ride is already a better day, and a bad day riding still beats a good day working.
